Thanks Card| HLS Anything Foes with Dies

Hello Folks,

I hope all of you are doing good. It is finally that time of the year when most of us artists get the maximum inspiration with the mother nature spreading her color palette out for all of us, isnt it? Also after the end of almost 9 months, while we are safe, healthy and happy, it is my personal favorite time to be thankful to all those who let this happen.

So I created this CAS style Thanks card using just the dies.

Lets have a look at the card first




To create this card, I used the Desert Sand cardstock by Craftangles and trimmed it to 11 x 4.25 inches.

I then ran through the top layer through the Darice Embossing folder of the tress. I the  die cut the Neenah Solar White Cardstock through the Dress My Craft Leaves 4 dies and then ink blended with Distress Oxides in Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold and Abandoned Coral.

Finally I die cut the sentiments Thanks from a die cut in Craftangles Pumpkin Orange Cardstock twice to stack it. I then assembled all my elements using the liquid adhesive and finally added a Nuvo drop in Orange to seal the leaves. Lastly, I splattered some white, black and orange paint.

And it is done.. Isnt that easy.

Miss You | HLS Watercolor Challenge

 Hello Folks,

While the nature plays around with the most beautiful colors, I tend to miss all those who we haven't seen for so log. Although Thanksgiving happens to be one of those occasions when we all sit down around and enjoy but miss the ones who are not around. This goes around to my sister who would not be home this year because of the International travel bans.

I created this watercolor card using the leaves only from the Simon Says Stamp More Spring Flowers Stampset and watercolored it using the Craftangles Liquid Watercolor. I then using the Circled Stencil from tubby Craft, added some frost looks using the Texture Paste in white. I then finally stamped the sentiments from Simon Says Stamp Stronger Together stamp set and heat set it in Bronze Embossing Powder and die cut it through Craftangles Steel Dies.

And lastly splattered all the left over watercolors for a dense look.


Hope you like it, and let me know in the comments below..

You are Fabulous | HLS Watercolor Challenge

 Hello Folks,

I hope all of you are having a great time while the summers is in full peak and there ae flowers all around. I have recently relocated near to the tropical area on the East Coast of India and it is very very different here. There are frequent passing showers and then sudden rise in temperature and very humid here. But the best part is, that it is all green with the Sal jungles. If you have been following me on Instagram @the_cardogram you'd have seen the greenery I am enjoying and the little new acquaintances I have.. Yes the jackals..

I enjoy watercoloring in the green scenery. Lets have a look at what I created.


This time for the challenge I have  watercolored the flowers from Simon Says Stamp called More Spring Flowers using the liquid watercolors from Craftangles on the 200 GSM watercolor paper by Brustro. After I was happy with the whole coloring, I fussy cut them.

I prepped up the background by loose washing with the liquid colors in mauve and purple on the 110lb Neenah Solar White cut in 4.25x 5.5 inches panel. Using the delicate lace stencil by Craftadda and the White texture paste i stenciled it a little off centre. After it was all died up, I then adhered all my flowers using the 3D foam tape. I stamped the sentiments You are fabulous from the Colorado Craft Company Stampset on the black cardstock and heat embossed using the pink embossing powder.

To complete the look I embellished using the Nuvo drops in clear, turquoise and pumpkin. After the whole was ready, I stuck it on the Neenah Desert Cardstock.

I hope you liked it. Please let me in the comments below, I love to read them <3

Happy Birthday!

Hello Crafty Folks!

Birthdays are very important and as long as I remember I have always been waiting eagerly for my sister's and my birthday from the day it finished. Like all kids, I loved the balloons and the cakes and yes who doesn't love to unwrap the gifts.

So my todays card is all about the balloons and especially crafted for a friend who is very very dear to me. Let us have a look at my todays card.



To create this card, I die the balloons from the MFT stitched balloons die from various rainbow colored cardstocks. I arranged them in various heights and angles to give it a look that they are rising up. I adhered the lowest ones with the liquid glue while the top ones using the 3D foam tape. I then tied the threads with each of them.

To add the sentiments I die cut Happy Birthday sentiments from the Funky Fossil Die from the Gold Glitter paper and stacked it through for added dimension.

Hope you like it and would like to know about it too!!

Style, Charm and Grace!

Hello Crafty Folks,

Style, Charm and Grace are the perfect words to describe a lady, isn't it! And like all the women we know each one is unique and has been handling things to bring herself out of the crowd or leaving a past.. 

Have a look at my card and you'd understand what I mean..



 To create this card, I die cut the flowers from the 3D flower fantasy die from Altenew, once from the pumpkin orange and other from the pattern paper that complements the orange color. And the leaves from the same die set in black and gray. 

I stuck these on the black panel measuring 5.5 x 4 inches. To add a little texture and interest, I added the black and white striped pattern paper from MFT.

Finally, heat embossed the sentiments from Atlenew Charm Stampset and heat set in Clear Embossing Powder.

Hope you like it! And could relate with this.. And BTW this is inspired by a very talented crafty friend Michele Fergusen.
